nyk2005I fail to install mysql-server. I already installed and removed it before. Then purged it. But now the config script fails to start the mysql daemon and exits. When I start mysqld_safe from the command line, I get this error: "Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Address already in use". But no other mysqld is running and I checked with netstat -ap, and the port is free! What can it be?01:05

JoshhhhhhI just installed ubuntu Server 9.10, and have created a new user after the installation was done. My user doesn't have any sort of bash history or console autocomplete. Is there something I missed?01:51
kane_Joshhhhhh: is your shell bash? and do you have a home dir for the user?01:52
Joshhhhhhkane_, I did specify the home directory for the user, but I didn't think about the shell not being bash..01:53
Joshhhhhhlet me check.01:53
Joshhhhhhkane_, my new user's shell is /bin/sh, hmm, I never had to specify that as an option before01:54
kane_type 'which bash'01:54
kane_then 'chsh'01:54
kane_it'll ask you for your new shell, and just give it the full path to the output of 'which bash'01:55
Joshhhhhhkane_, should I wait for my compile job to finish?01:56
kane_Joshhhhhh: just open a new terminal and do it there :)01:56
Joshhhhhhkane_, I would be. I was just wondering if it would affect my running compile jo01:57
kane_unless it's spawning a new user session, no01:57
Joshhhhhhkane_, woot, it works. Thanks a bunch01:58
kane_no worries Joshhhhhh01:58
JoshhhhhhI've got a lot of configuring to do, I'm migrating to ubuntu-server after 10 years of Gentoo :)01:58
kane_Joshhhhhh: welcome to the fold :)01:58
JoshhhhhhI'm having a hard time getting familiar with all the repository complicated mess01:59
JoshhhhhhIn Gentoo, if it was in portage, it was available, one way or another01:59
kane_Joshhhhhh: it can be a bit tricky in the beginning, but there's actually a very simple table that illustrates it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_(operating_system)#Package_classification_and_support02:00
Joshhhhhhkane_, oh, awesome, thanks02:00
kane_Joshhhhhh: you'll notice a lot of software vendors also set up their own apt-repo for their product, which you can add to your apt sources.list and it becomes magically available02:01
kane_Joshhhhhh: rabbitmq for example: http://www.rabbitmq.com/debian.html#apt02:02
JoshhhhhhSo what happens in the situation of: E: Couldn't find package liblame-dev02:02
kane_E: can't install till it can be found02:03
JoshhhhhhThat means it's probably available, but on a diferent package source?02:03
kane_Joshhhhhh: the supported repos from canonical tend to not suffer from this, but 3rd party/unsupported stuff may depend on libraries not releases02:03
kane_it's the apt equivalent of 'no such file or directory' :)02:03
kane_Joshhhhhh: it's not happened to me in years, but it's usually a packaging mistake when it does02:04
Joshhhhhhoh, it seems the package was modified to libmp3lame-dev02:04
JoshhhhhhI'm following old instructions, apparently02:04
kane_that's certainly possible; you'll often find that if 'libfoo-bar' got renamed or split out, a place holder package is put in place that pulls in the new version02:05
Joshhhhhhoh, I think I saw that earlier. I can't quote the log entry, but....02:05

w3rd_hey guys, Im running ubuntu server and i have a LAMP server running04:00
w3rd_i have installed some third party application for monitoring my ups04:00
w3rd_after i upgraded i ran into issues04:00
w3rd_the webserver for the admin panel on my ups software is clobbering all httpd access04:01
w3rd_so i cant seem to access my files for my site04:01
russlarw3rd_: do you need the web panel on the UPS software?04:02
w3rd_i would like to remove the software to access the files on my site04:02
w3rd_i have tried to change web root via httpd.conf04:02
russlarremove the software completely, or just turn off the web portion?04:03
w3rd_and it will default to the path for the software running the admin web services for the ups04:03
russlarediting httpd.conf probably won't help04:03
russlarthe ups app is hanging on to port 8004:03
w3rd_well when i disable the service for the ups web admin it clobbers httpd completely and disables all functions04:03
ScottKw3rd_: You should probably talk to the people you got the 3rd party software from.04:03
w3rd_that is what i was thinking04:03
w3rd_that is where im at with this whole thing04:03
bogeyd6you need to change the port the ups app is listening on04:04
w3rd_we have tried changing the port on the software to allow for attempting access elsewhere04:04
w3rd_but i still am not able to access the files in web root04:05
w3rd_i had some issues starting httpd after the upgrade04:05
w3rd_i guess the upgrade from apache 2, to 2.2 has some issues with naming conventions04:06
w3rd_but i was able to get the darn thing to start finally once i modified the modules...04:06
w3rd_but does that make sense at all that i cant access web root, could it be an issue with the way that i modified the configuration file? that doesnt seem to hold if i am able to access port 80 traffic for the ups software, right??04:07
some_namehey guys, sorry about that.. had to bounce earlier04:49
some_namebasically i was whining about the issue with the UPS software04:49
some_namemy server was running a webserver and running a client application that utilizes webservices and after i upgraded i was no longer able to access the content in webroot04:51
some_nameim only able to see the webserver content for the admin panel of my ups client app04:52
some_namei was hoping that if i removed the application this would allow the httpd to free up..04:53
some_nameis there way to check for what services utilize port 80 and which are first to be accessed if there is some sort of priorirty established for web services?04:54

mok0len, have you installed the nfs-server?13:04
lenyes, It were perfect before the shutdown I needed to do on friday13:05
mok0len, are you cross-mounting between macines A and B?13:05
lenmok0: nope. I had no entry on /etc/exports the computer2 till today.13:06
mok0len, what is the content of your /etc/exports on the server?13:07
lenmok0: /fabrica <my computer2 ip>(ro,sync)13:08
acalvolen: is there any other solution that does not compromise security?13:08
mok0len, as root, create a directory somewhere, and try to mount computer1:/fabrica on it13:09

mok0len, umount -l /the_hung_dir13:13
mok0len, then shutdown client and reboot server13:13
lenmok0: I did that before comming here13:14
mok0len, ok, on server, what does exportfs say?13:14
len1 sec, I need to kill some ssh. I tryed to use tab complete on mount dir and console froze again13:15
lenI think Im gonna restart it again13:15
mok0hehe yeah, NFS is one of the few things that makes rebooting necessary...13:16
lenclient is rebooting now13:17
nyk2005I installed postgresql, but now /etc/init.d/postgresql-8.4 start doesn't do a thing. The executable seems to be missing.13:17

mok0len, is lockd running?13:20
lenon client?13:20
mok0len, on server13:20
lenseems so. I got kblockd/0 til /3 and lockd13:21
mok0len, does /fabrica function normally on server?13:21
lenyes, people are accessing it now through samba13:23
mok0len, try mouting machine1:/fabrica /mnt/xxxx (manually)13:23
mok0len, I mean on the client13:24
lenmok0: yeah I figured it out :)13:24
mok0len, good :)13:24
mok0len, look for error messages in the log. It13:25
mok0It is often permission problems13:25
lenits mounted13:25
lenmok0: may my bkp script is breaking nfs ?13:26
lenim going to try to move some files around just like my script13:26
mok0len, bkp?13:26
lenback up13:27
mok0len, do you use autofs?13:27
lenmok0: no, I mount the dir on script, then I umount it on the end13:27
mok0len, ah.13:27
mok0len, for backup, I suggest you use rsync13:28
mok0len, look at "rsnapshot"13:28
mok0len, then you can avoid using NFS, and rsync is more efficient13:28
lenI had plan of using rsync13:29
lenbut I didnt had the time to read how to configure13:29
mok0len, rsnapshot is very quick to set up13:29
lenIm not a linux expert, and I had to make some services to work the fastest way possible, so I did the way I know13:30
mok0len, yeah, that's the way most of us have learned everything we know :-)13:30
lenmok0: BRB.13:31
mok0len check out http://rsnapshot.org/13:32
mok0len, you can then create a system that lets users see their own backup directories on the server, using autofs. It can work almost like "Time Machine" on the Mac.13:33

lenwill I be able to recover it?13:35

mok0len, you mean with rsync?13:36
lenI mean, the file may get corrupted or deleted and my fear is that he syncs that too and I lose some important file13:37
mok0len, if the file content has changed, then yes13:37
mok0len, rsnapshot keeps N days of backups13:37
mok0len, we use 40 here13:37
lenmok0: cool I'll run for rsnapshot13:38
mok0len, it uses hard links to save space13:38
lensorry about the newbie quest: But what is hard link?13:39
mok0len, it's a directory entry that points to the same data area as the "mother" entry13:39
mok0len, however, if you remove the "mother" file, you do not delete the file13:40
mok0len, that's different with a symbolic link13:40
lenmok0: I got it. :)13:41
mok0len, the "link number" is shown by ls -l, as the number after the -rw-rw-rw- thing13:42
mok0Unix is sooo cool :-)13:43

lenI had a problem with sound too. I bougth that Sound System With USB, but seems that only work with musicmatch... kinda annoying!13:46

speedohello, is someone using boot from iscsci i iBFT there?13:46
mok0len, the only problem I13:47
mok0've had with sound is that the master volume tends to be muted when the machine has booted13:47
lenfor example if I try to import ps3. From taxes I'll have to pay ps3 price + 60% of its value because of importing + anothers taxes + the profit from who is vending13:48
mok0Haven't had time to figure out what to do about it, just  a minor nuisance since I rarely reboot13:48
mok0len, take it up with G-12 or whatever :-)13:49
mok0len, I've the impression that Brazil taxes foreign goods quite heavily. I guy wrote the same about a Garmin GPS13:49
lenmok0: it's heavy. Very often we see people crossing the board or entering here without saying that is bringing something inside the country so it wont have to pay13:51

acalvoin the config files of the service, it runs as another user, which controls the permissions of its configuration files14:24
=== chuck_ is now known as zul
mok0acalvo: what service are we talking about?14:24
nyk2005mok0: strange...14:25
mok0acalvo: ah, I am not familiar with it14:25
mok0nyk2005: I'd try to dpkg --purge postgres and install it again14:25
acalvomok0: most services run as another user (like mysql), so the configuration files are owned by that user14:26
acalvoit's a sanity check, I think14:26
acalvoso nobody else can run the service14:26
acalvoat least not with that configuration14:26
mok0acalvo: OK, I see14:26
acalvoif I put the user who has to have control to that service in the sudoers file14:27
acalvoit can lauch the binary14:27
acalvobut can't read the configuration files, because the binary is owned by him14:27
acalvohowever, I don't see any other solution that what you both suggested14:28
mok0acalvo: It's worth trying14:29
lenacalvo: another sugestion, maybe u can create some init's file that starts and stop the service, and give the control of this file to ur user. Inside this file you may try changing user to start the service....14:29
lenmok0: seems I solved the problem with nfs14:30
mok0len, good!14:30
lenmok0: the problem were the cable14:30
nyk2005mok0: didn't work...14:30
acalvolen: good point, but init files already do that14:30
acalvoI'll go straight and add the user to the group owner of the files14:31
mok0nyk2005: Hm, give us some more information to work on14:32
lenacalvo: I read something about ACL, Access Control Lists you may put 2 or more grps to a file or group of files14:32
lenwith different permissions14:32
acalvoyou're right, I've read something about it too14:32
acalvobut it would involve stopping a production server14:33
nyk2005mok0: config dirs are also empty..14:35
mok0nyk2005: what config dirs?14:36
nyk2005mok0: /etc/postgres*14:36
lenacalvo: another solution, you may use RWXR-X--- and you can put the grp without modifying the configuration14:36
mok0nyk2005: uhm, you should have a directory "8.4" in there.14:37
nyk2005mok0: not there.14:37
mok0nyk2005: something is seriously wrong with your installation14:38
nyk2005mok0: yes, somehow!14:40
nyk2005mok0: it's also strange that the auto-partitioner only assigned 2gb to the root partition, but 12gb for each of the many tmpfs partitions.14:41
nyk2005mok0: already almost ran out of space when installing texlife14:41
acalvolen: it's worth a shot14:41
mok0nyk2005: yes, that's very odd, and wrong14:41
mok0nyk2005: how much space have you got on your disk?14:42
nyk2005mok0: maybe because the server has a very small primary hdd (only 40gb SD) and 24gb of ram, so it failed to partition correctly...14:42
mok0nyk2005: you want just 2 partitions, /boot (512Mb) and / (the rest)14:43
nyk2005mok0: argle.. :) why did it do that so wrongly?14:43
mok0nyk2005: I don't know... weird14:43
nyk2005mok0: where are the tmpfs defined? I didn't see them in fstab. So I can mount the other partions at /var or /tmp14:44
mok0nyk2005: never mind the tmpfs, they are in memory14:44
nyk2005mok0: yeah, I read so also, but why is then only 2gb available to root? hmm...14:44
mok0nyk2005: can you do a "df -h" ?14:45
nyk2005mok0: maybe a broken install try partitioned something away..14:45
nyk2005mok0: only shows 2gb for / and the tmpfs14:45
nyk2005and the raid14:46
mok0nyk2005: could be... I always make the partions manually, they are never right for me14:46
_rubena large chunk is probably used for swap (based on memsize)14:46
nyk2005mok0: strange is: /dev/sda6 is / and there's no /boot14:46
mok0nyk2005: can you paste the line with / ?14:46
nyk2005/dev/sda6             2.3G  1.9G  370M  84% /14:46
mok0nyk2005: ah14:47
nyk2005it's very wrong, but still don't why 370megs shouldn't be enough for psql...14:47
mok0nyk2005: a tiny partion :-)14:47
mok0nyk2005: it might have gone over while installing14:47
mok0nyk2005: here's my df -h line:14:48
mok0/dev/sdd3              28G  1,3G   26G   5% /14:48
nyk2005mok0: true... because of the packages..14:48
mok0nyk2005: right14:48
acalvowill, it didn't work14:48
nyk2005so your's would also fit in 2gb.. :)14:48
acalvoI don't understand14:48
acalvoif I run the init script as root14:48
acalvoeverything works14:48
acalvohowever, the init script starts the process with another user/group14:49
mok0nyk2005: it would, but I am not sure I could install in 2 Gb... besides, you also need some space for postgresql's data14:49
nyk2005mok0: I put all data on a separate raid514:49
acalvoso it should be able to read its configuration14:49
mok0nyk2005: ok14:49
nyk2005but you're right, I should probably reinstall :(14:50
mok0nyk2005: I think so... you'll be scrounging for disk space from now on14:50
nyk2005mok0: or at least mount that unused partitions as /var and then reinstall all packages. Can apt to that?14:50
mok0nyk2005: but what happened to the rest of that disk?14:50
mok0nyk2005: if you mount that partition and copy /var to it, then empty /var and mount the partition as /var...14:52
nyk2005mok0: must have been partitioned before and then only used free space. I installed over a remote control interface, which had bad connection and was slow and unstable..  so had to try more than once to get it installed. it was very annoying... tried 3 debian ISOs, none worked. only ubuntu for some strange reason, if I turned off acpi...14:52
mok0nyk2005: I think you need to reinstall :-)14:52
mok0nyk2005: it will be faster than doing all the other shit14:53
mok0acalvo: probably the binary runs suid to that user14:53
nyk2005mok0: or copy the whole root to the larger, unused space!14:54
nyk2005mok0: I try to fix it because I can reinstall from where I currently am, my upstream is to slow for virtual ISOs.14:54
nyk2005I mean can't.. :)14:54
mok0nyk2005: yikes.14:54
acalvoquite confusing14:54
mok0nyk2005: but you will need to re-install every package I think. You can use dpkg --get-selections to save your current list of packages14:56
nyk2005mok0: cool, thanks! that will fix it!14:58
mok0nyk2005: good luck :_)14:58
lenmok0: time to eat14:59
lenthx for help14:59
mok0len, np14:59
nyk2005mok0: thanks! but why is /boot on root?14:59
mok0nyk2005: The installer normally puts it on its own little partition15:00
mok0nyk2005: In the olden days, the boot partition had to be the first one, I don't think it matters anymore15:00
mok0nyk2005: some sysadms like to unmount /boot when the system is up15:01
nyk2005mok0: ah yes, that what it's for...15:01
nyk2005mok0: so doesn't matter that much... except I have to be even more careful when moving the root partition...15:01
mok0nyk2005: it will be ... challenging :-)15:02
mok0nyk2005: if you are clever, you can join partitions without destroying what's on there15:03
nyk2005mok0: but at least R and mysql are running, which is what I'm currently using for work, so the system is not that broken.15:04
mok0nyk2005: heh, Linux is rather robust15:04
mok0nyk2005: things are hard when you don't have physical access to the hardware15:05
nyk2005mok0: yes, the tools for remote installing are very bad!15:05
nyk2005mok0: I mean except you have a very fast upstream..15:06
mok0I read something on the interwebs where a sysadm upgraded a running Debian system to Ubuntu :-)15:06
nyk2005mok0: What would be cool is an open netinstall server... doesn't this exists? The main problem are the virtual CDs (isos)...15:06
nyk2005mok0: well ok, that also seems tricky...15:07
mok0nyk2005: we have one that's used locally for upgrades etc.15:07
nyk2005mok0: can you also use it for new installs?15:08
mok0you set the new machine to boot from the net, and it fires up the installer15:09

Fenix|workyou are using microsoft windows server for user accounts now?17:33
Fenix|workif you're planning on using Ubuntu server to host your user accounts and have samba as the PDC... then 'roaming profiles' is irrelevant.  You use either Samba or an NFS mount to mount their home directory on their local system and whenever they log in they have their home directory available to them.17:37
